Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
For many infertile women who want to become pregnant, the only option is to use the eggs of a fertile donor. Glazer, a clinical social worker and infertility coach, and Sterling, a public health consultant, have teamed up to produce an exhaustive guide for anyone considering egg donation. This is not a clinical how-to book; the authors instead focus on "the psycho-social ramifications of having and parenting a baby using the ova of a donor." After briefly surveying the history of egg donation and the medical process involved, Glazer and Sterling discuss in depth finding and selecting a donor and egg donor programs; case studies provide a personal view of how couples and individuals make the decision. Ethical, legal, economic, and religious considerations, including the roles of lawyers and mental health counselors, are addressed in detail. Also well covered are tips on how to share this information with the family and talk with children born through egg donation. A list of resources and references rounds out the text. This excellent resource is highly recommended for most consumer health collections.-Jodith Janes, Cleveland Clinic Fdn. Lib. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    My wife and I have struggled with infertility for over five year

    My wife and I have struggled with infertility for over five years. It's been hard for both of us to hear that donor egg is recommended. This book provided us with a great introduction to the subject. The authors are clear, comprehensive, compassionate, and balanced in their approach to egg donation and other options, such as adoption. We both came away from reading the book feeling much more informed and more prepared to move forward with this and most importantly, we are finally finally optimistic.
